Most of you know that I also participate in the blog A sustainable life. On that blog I wrote a piece called Clothes anyone? The research for this story was a lot of fun and led me to all kinds of blogs and flickr-accounts. The flickr-account of Melanie was the most attractive one for me because it gave me a sense of hé I can do this too.
Now the thought was a lot easier than the process I have to admit even though we are just talking about a scarf. Anyway, in the picture above you can see how I cut the sleeves into rectangles and stitched them with a running stitch together again.
Than came the hard part. I had to use my sewing machine. This sounds probably ridiculous and it is ridiculous. I have a sewing machine for about 8 years I guess and if it has been outside its box twice than that is a lot. This gives you some indication of my skills!!!! But I did manage to get it all stitched together, don't ask about the amount of time I used, and this is the result so far.
What is left is that I have to put the cuff on the scarf and sewing the black linen backside on it. With a little bit of luck, just one day of work. Keep your fingers crossed and you may see a machine sewed piece made by me after all.
Have a great day with a learning smile.
